“the lobby is a Gorman gallery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

We stopped in to see if the hotel was built similar to its sibling in Santa Fe, but it is not. The Gorman collection in the lobby is amazing and FREE to see. It may be the best gallery in Santa Fe and Taos.
The coffee shop off the lobby only takes cash, but makes a great mocha.

We spent 4 nights at the La Fonda Taos in May 2012. We loved it's quirky charm: similar to a small European Boutique hotel, The staff was on point at all times, friendly and very accommodating. They were mortified on our first morning when jack hammers went to work on the plaza at 6:30 am. We asked to move from our front of the hotel balcony room to somewhere in the back. we were given a lovely two room suite. The jack hammers and workmen finished in one day so not a problem, really. The free Starbucks coffee and bottled waters are a really nice amenity.

Room Tip: Balcony room was noisy and it is a shared balcony with the room next door.

This is the third time we've stayed at the La Fonda (nice historic Southwest ambiance). We stay there when our number of nights in Taos are fewer than necessary for renting a house or condo. We like the price, location, rooms (facing the back, not the plaza, just in case of noise). We've had queen rooms and they are small, but fine for a night or two. There is a nice sitting area in a 'loft' type space above the check in desk. Staff are pleasant. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and the breakfast burrito was great. The only problem was that wifi didn't work in our room (thick adobe walls) so you'd have to bring a computer that you could plug in.

This is a very pleasant hotel and has a nice Western ambiance. Steve the owner/manager went out of his way to help us out, picking us up at the airport after hours and dropping us off the next morning. Excellent restaurant, friendly staff. I would absolutely stay here again on my next trip to Taos.
